highlighting the margins…
providing a platform
Violet Margin is a publication specifically for undergraduate students. Aspiring writers of any level are invited to submit their work here. We understand how challenging it can be to get published- especially the first time. Violet Margin wants to make publication more accessible.
We strive for a diverse set of voices in every issue. Our world does not hold one narrative, and its literature should reflect that. At Violet Margin we are interested in narratives that otherwise get pushed to the margins. We want to give writers from marginalized backgrounds the space to push back and make their voice heard anyway.
Violet Margin is most interested in publishing work that pushes the margins. Experimental works are welcomed here. Here at Violet Margin we aim to break the molds that often confine writers. We dare our writers to be bold!
